So if you’re currently eating sauerkraut, or if you have been/are interested in ways to get some probiotics into your system, make sure your sauerkraut has not been pasteurized and/or heated up. For example, when I make a meal and I want to add sauerkraut, I usually cook some in a pan with some water, so its warm, but then I also add some fresh/raw sauerkraut on top afterwards with some of that nice raw sauerkraut juice that’s filled with probiotics. And if you want to get even a bit more crafty, no reason you can’t make this stuff on your own. All you need is cabbage and salt and some containers to let it ferment.
Here is a raw sauerkraut I just found on Amazon.com:
have a great day and rest of the week!
So I like UC’ers. That’s been going on since 2009 I’d say.
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.

Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
